Question ID: 767014
Here's a tough one. I am trying to find a list that includes ALL of
1-4 below, and preferably 1-5:
1) Chemists working in the R&D department for their current employer 
2) Experience with water-based extrusion primers (that can be used in
processes known as ?extrusion coating? and ?extrusion lamination?)
3) Working at the management level or higher (could also be Director,
VP, SVP, or EVP)
4)  List that includes 50+ names with a way to contact them (name and
company with email or phone)
5) PhD level chemists

If this info cannot be found, I will pay a tip for some or all of A-C below:
A) Contact info for PhD level professors at universities with strong
reputation for graduating chemical engineers
B) Names of recent symposiums or conferences for chemist working with
water-based extrusion primers
C) Names of association groups or similar where the people described
above are likely members or participants, even if the actual list
cannot be found.
Thanks for your efforts!

actually since submitting this question, I determined that my
parameter #2 (experience with water-based extrusion primers) would be
NICE to have, but NOT a requirement.  They can have broader experience
 UV cured products or with polymers and resins, for example
polymers/emulsions for the paint industry, and/or water-based resins. 
Companies they might work for include Johnson Polymers, BASF,
companies in the paper coating business or additives business (Air
Products, Reichhold Inc, BASF, Noveon (formerly BF Goodrich), Scitech
(just bought UCB).

Thanks for responding.  I have a bit of a dilemma with your answer.
The info MAY turn out to be useful to me, but most of these names do
not meet requirement #1 (Chemists working in the R&D department for
their current employer).  The majority are A) consultants working for
themselves, not an employer, and B) not working in an R&D department.
(The requirement to be listed on the Chemconsult site, for example
states that "Member's principal professional income is derived from

So that you know why I need them to be working in the R&D department
for their current employer, it is because I am a crecuiter trying to
fill an R&D role with one of these contacts for my client.  It is
unlikely that the people you provided will be people that I can
recruit/hire...though contacting them may turn out to be indirectly
useful because they may be in  a positiion to referral others to me. 
But I won't know until after I contact them.  Open to your suggestions
on how to be fair to both of us ;-).

Hi sakauf-ga!

First off, I really tried to find most people with all the inital 1-4
to 1-5 classifications that you have. As long as I found them, I
included them in the list. Upon exhausting such possibilities, I
concentrated on the consultants since they have the R&D experience and
the managerial ones as well.

When I looked for the PHD level chemists that you required, I did
looked upon their R&D positions but I also looked if they are on a
managerial level and at times I find people who have risen to the top
so to speak.

Another thing here is that, if I find names within company websites,
they do not provide ways to contact these people individually and you
have to call the company itself which I think isn't your purpose at

I hope this clears up why the results turn out this way.

You have outlined why I initially said this was a tough question. 
True, when you go to company websites, it is rare to find the contact
info.  And yes, I was hoping to avoid calling the companies by perhaps
finding a list of attendees to a chemical symposium, trade-show
exhibit, etc.

I still have the dilemma I mentioned in my last clarification: the
info is close, but not what I asked for...but it MAY still be helpful.
 Do you know if there are provisions through Google for me to pay a
partial fee...versus all or nothing?

Clarification of Answer by easterangel-ga on 03 Oct 2006 23:59 PDT

Once the question has been answered, the fee may not be changed anymore. 

Ok just to try once more, what would be a good substitute for you or
additional list as related to the question above that could help you
even further? I really would like to help you on this one but I am
stumped as well since I tried to combine everything and do my best so
as to get to the bottom of your requirements. Maybe if we have another
criteria that we can work on so that it would help you then we can
still make this work.

Thanks again.

You also said that conferences wherein chemists like these would be
good for you. Would something like this be ok with you?
